Burbank, CA (Feb. 17, 2017) – DC Collectibles, the award winning line of collectibles – directly from the source – DC Entertainment, revealed an exciting new lineup of statues, action figures and more ahead of New York Toy Fair. In 2017 DC Collectibles will debut a stunning 12’’ statue line based on the highly anticipated Warner Bros. Pictures’ film Justice League.  DC Collectibles will also venture into new product categories by releasing its first-ever Batcave Vignette set inspired by the fan-favorite Batman: The Animated Series TV show.  In addition, DC Collectibles will expand its highly articulated action figure offerings – adding new character designs for Batman, Harley Quinn, and Wonder Woman – to current bestselling lines, including DC Bombshells and DC Icons.
DC Collectibles’ new Justice League statue line will allow fans to collect their favorite characters timed to the film’s release. The first wave of statues hitting shelves in 2017 includes Ben Affleck’s Batman, Henry Cavill’s Superman, Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa’s Aquaman, Ezra Miller’s The Flash and Ray Fisher’s Cyborg.
“Our new Justice League statue line was produced with unmatched craftsmanship and precise attention to detail and I think fans of these characters are going to be thrilled with the result,” stated DC Collectibles Vice President, Kevin Kiniry.
DC Collectibles will also debut a massive 15.5”x 17”x 21” Batman Animated Batcave Vignette that will allow fans to recreate their favorite scenes from the award-winning show and showcase their treasured 6’’ BTAS action figure collection. The Batcave will feature a special LED light-up Bat-Computer, interchangeable computer screen graphics and will include an exclusive Alfred action figure with unique accessories.
“The Batcave Vignette is a great example of how we’re constantly looking for new ways to capture the most iconic and authentic moments from the DC Universe and reimagine them in three-dimensional form,” stated DC Collectibles Executive Director, Creative, Jim Fletcher. “Now Batman: The Animated Series action figure collectors have an entirely new way to display and enhance their collections.”
DC Collectibles also plans to expand its popular DC Bombshells collection with new DC heroines Supergirl, Batgirl, Mera, Katana, Hawkgirl, and Bumblebee as 6.75’’ action figures in the DC Designer Series. In addition, the clown princess of crime Harley Quinn will once again be reimagined as a DC Bombshells statue, bringing the complete original Ant Lucia concept illustration to life as a deluxe 1940s-designed statue, standing at 12” tall. Joining Harley, Starfire is the newest character from the DC Universe to receive a bombshell makeover and will debut as a DC Bombshell statue in 2018.
DC Collectibles will add several characters pulled straight from the pages of the bestselling DC UNIVERSE REBIRTH line of comic books to its fan-favorite DC Icons 6” action figure series. The new figures to follow the already announced Justice League action figure 7-pack include Robin and Superboy from the celebrated SUPER SONS comic book from Peter J. Tomasi and Jorge Jimenez, and Supergirl from the SUPERGIRL comic series by all-star creative team Ray McCarthy, Steve Orlando and Emanuela Lupacchino.

Other new products scheduled for 2017 include new lifestyle items such as The Joker and Harley Quinn Bookends, a working Bat-Signal prop replica, and a new Wonder Woman Bracelets with Lasso and Tiara prop replica set. Additions to DC Collectibles’ longest running statue series, Batman: Black & White, are also on tap for 2017 and will feature designs from the comic book industry’s top artists Amanda Connor and John Romita Jr., among others.

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
